We are now recruiting for our January 2022 Internship programme!

Are you looking for an exciting internship opportunity at one of the UK’s largest health charities?  


Why we need you 

Funded by Cancer Research UK and the health departments from the UK nations, the ECMC network is made up of 18 adult and 11 paediatric Experimental Cancer Medicine Centres (ECMCs) across the UK, that are dedicated to supporting pioneering, early-stage clinical trials and translation of scientific discoveries into new cancer treatments for patients. The ECMC Programme Office supports the activities of the network. 

The ECMC website is a key tool in promoting the activities of the ECMC network. This project will look at how we can optimise the website to showcase the network’s expertise and capabilities and attract industry to partner with us to bring new treatments to UK patients. 


What will I be doing?  

  • Responsible for monitoring and updating the website on an ongoing basis to improve performance 

  • Reporting a comprehensive set of web analytics (I.e., Google Analytics and HotJar) to maintain the prominence of our clinical information in search engines and maximise reach 

  • Produce high-level analytics reports and take responsibility for creating robust Key Performance Indicators to inform decision making 

  • Plan and run user testing to ensure that the website is meeting user needs

What skills are you looking for?

  • Good written and verbal communication skills 

  • Analytical skills  

  • Relationship management skills  

  • Passionate about digital  


What will I gain? 

This role will add real value to Cancer Research UK so we want to ensure you’re getting a lot out of it too. As an intern you’ll go through a structured development programme with skills training in project management, CV writing and interview skills and you’ll have a buddy to help you settle in. You’ll be eligible for many of our benefits, including paid holiday, and you’ll gain key experience to help you launch your career.  


How do I apply? 

Please apply online by uploading your details and answering an application question. Please complete an application form for only one of the streams.  


Application Process: 


Stage 1: Online application   

Complete an online application form – you’ll be asked to answer a motivational competency question and upload your CV.   

Please note, our application process is now anonymised. So please ensure you fill out all of the required fields as well as uploading a CV, as they will be collected for use later in the process.   

Stage 2: Assessment – Shortly after submitting your application   

If your initial application is successful you will then be invited to complete our new situational judgment test. The test poses real life scenarios that a CRUK intern might be met with in their day to day role and asks how you would tackle that scenario. This is multiple choice.   


Stage 3: Audio Submission 

If you are successful in the previous stage, you will be asked to complete an audio submission, answering competency-based questions. The questions will be emailed to you and you will have a few days to submit a response via an audio recording (no video required).   

Stage 4: Interviews

If you are successful in the previous stage, you will then be invited to a face-to-face interview at our head office or online via Teams, with representatives from the team you are applying to.
